The horizon behind the surfer ripping a tight turn is to me original and fun.

This is a fantastic capture, but it looks like it's a capture from television.

Great motion capture, but isn't the main subject the horizon, if that's your line?

i think you might've stretched this entry just as far as i stretched mine for the challenge. i hope yours is doing better than mine :P

Well, the horizon is there, but it's not the subject. I'm not punishing for not meeting the challenge; I don't really do that anyway. It's a good shot, but somehow the colors don't work for me. 7

Great capture. For the challenge I think you need the horizon (an obvious line for the purists) but I'd love to see a tighter crop after the challenge

This is a fantastic action shot. The top half of the photo seems like wasted space to me. It's out of focus, and it adds no value to the photo. In fact, I think there is more drama if the surfer is high in the photo.

the horizon is a line, yes, but it's not the emphasis of the photo. However, this is a spectacular shot, and the waves themselves have lines, so although I would under other circumstances give it a "10", I can only at this point give it a "9". Great photo!

nice shot but it feels like you did not do the challenge, this photo is not about the horizon its about the surfer, but again nice shot

Doesn't look like you have wanted to capture the horizon. It looks more like the horizon happen to be there :) Nice action though.
